Why are Native Hawaiians protesting against construction of a giant telescope on Mauna Kea?

US Democratic Party presidential nominees Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders have both tweeted their support for the protesters, while President Donald Trump has not made his position clear.

Johnson’s visit to Mauna Kea came on the 10th day of protests, after the Governor issued a state of emergency amid what he described as rising tensions at the site.

„I wanted to come here and see our people and stand with them and support them,“ Johnson told Hawaii News Now.
